I'm just a little bothered by my daily loneliness. I was just thinking: it's much harder being lonely in winter, because the cold feels so much colder. I go to visit my Mom, Sister, and Niece; I want to give my sister a hug, but she is too busy lying in bed and on her phone to give me a hug or anything. I want to give my Niece a hug, especially since she has the potential to be the last granule of sanity in my life, but she's just a baby and she's sleeping. My Mom is more than willing to hug me, but my lifetime of resentment towards her makes interacting with her something I have to endure.

Being back home, it's very hard to enjoy anything by myself when it's tinged through with my dissatisfaction with life. I had some games I wanted to play with online friends, but they're all busy or sick. I have to restrain myself from getting angry with them, because I know it's not their fault, I just want to hang out with someone.

I have an interview tomorrow for a receptionist position. I hope my hair isn't too long to seem unprofessional, and I hope I can remember how to behave myself in a professional environment. I sometimes feel like my knowledge and skills are leaking out of my ears, so I seriously hope I can put my best foot forward and impress them enough to get this job. I'm kinda running out of opportunity in this city.

Best of luck for your interview, let's keep your internet connected. I'd offer to play but currently I'm absorbed in Dual Universe again and I seem to recall that's not for you... Other than that maybe a little guild wars 1 on the side if that's somehow tantalizing. Hope you will have it easier to hug your mom, doesn't come easy to me neither.

WHAT THE ABSOLUTE FUCK IS WRONG WITH ME? MY INTERVIEW WAS YESTERDAY. I WROTE IT DOWN WRONG. I WROTE IT WHILE I WAS ON THE PHONE, HOW COULD I GET IT WRONG?? I'VE FUCKING DISQUALIFIED MYSELF WITH SUCH A RUDIMENTARY FUCKING ERROR. I OFFICIALLY DESERVE ALL THE MISFORTUNE AND MISERY IN MY LIFE, I'VE BROUGHT THIS ON MYSELF, I DESERVE TO FUCKING DIE. MY VOICE IS HOARSE FROM SCREAMING IN MY CAR. JUST GODDAMNIT I'M WORTHLESS.

AND JUST TO RUB IT IN, THE MOMENT I WALK OUT OF THE OFFICE, I GET A TEXT SAYING THE FUCKING MCHIRE PROCESS FOR MCDONALDS IS READY TO MOVE FORWARD. THE COMEDIC TIMING IS SO FUCKING ON POINT I CAN'T FUCKING BELIEVE IT. I'M A FUCKING JOKE. WHAT AN OPPORTUNITY I'VE PISSED AWAY THROUGH MY OWN INCOMPETENCE, AGAIN! FUCKING AGAIN! I'LL NEVER FUCKING RECOVER FROM THIS. THIS IS A FUCKING MORTAL BLOW TO MY SELF-WORTH. JUST FUCK ME.

To err is human. Apparently you are human.
Don't be too harsh on yourself.

Try contacting the place you were supposed to have the interview. Be honest and tell them you mixed up the date and ask if they can give you another chance. Some employers can really appreciate such candid honesty and courage.

oh no, joshua

I don't know what it is about twists of fate like that, but life has this way of stacking misfortunes and absurdisms in hilarious/awful/wry fashion. For better or worse, life don't got brakes, so tomorrow's still going to trundle along. Always another chance to be there as it arrives, right?

I hope you had a good venting.

I get your anger but you don't deserve misfortune, at least not for that  :D... It was like a super small mistake, the only issue is that since you're a perfect stranger to them you likely won't get consolation/ a second chance (not even that is certain)... But I completly missed to show up some unconventional place the other day and was super stressed like it was going to be a giant issue, before all my colleagues went like "meh" and that put it in perspective.

I know _a lot_ about self-inflicted wounds.

You'll recover. As long as you don't spend all your time and energy beating yourself up for it. Let that hot flash of shame and self-disappointment wash over you. Feel it, or you won't learn from it. But then move on. If you let your last mistake define you then it will follow you forever. Maturity is acknowledging your mistakes and then growing beyond them. It's not the fucking up that defines who we are, it's how we deal with it.

Good luck Joshua. Look at it this way. The only place to go from here is up.

Thanks for the kind words everyone. The silver lining is that I did get that job at Mcdonalds... it's not glamorous, and the pay isn't great, but it's a very short commute, and it's a new experience. The hysterical reaction on my part is 99% disappointment in myself, and only 1% worry over my finances.

I apologize for the profanity and shameless ranting.

Pfffttt, read my post history. Bay12 is like my unpaid therapist just who nods, doodling on their notepad while I swear up a storm.

Glad you're working. Try to make some friends among the staff if you can, and don't give up on looking for a better job!

Motherf- I was, I kid you not, in a channel about religion listening to someone explain veganism to someone with dreadfully bad takes.

And my internet dropped! Thanks, Spectrum!

Also, to my phone: Phone. There is a period button. If I want to end a sentence, I'll press that button.
If I press the comma button, I want a comma. Not a period with some spaces.
And so I delete them and do it again
And then do it again, and this time you understand
Until later in the same message
Holy shit
Fuck you, algorithm

A serious leak has been revealed in Java software, making the log-in services of sites, including Apple, Google and Amazon extremely vulnerable.
The tech world is very worried, predicting it will lead to a wave of ransomware attacks of unprecedented scale within a few weeks.

https://www.volkskrant.nl/nieuws-achtergrond/lek-ontdekt-in-java-de-software-die-wordt-gebruikt-door-bedrijven-van-google-tot-nu-nl~baf541d5f/

EDIT: I've been using Firefox + NoScript for ages. It blocks website Java scripts from running unless you give them explicit permission. This now has become less secure, since it also affects sites that are on most people's allow lists.

Java scripts, or javascript? The vulnerability is with the Apache Log4j Java library. Pretty sure most websites aren't running raw java for their widgets.

Perhaps youd like to swap your 80s for my below freezing and possibly 13 of overnight snow?
